I watched a few but I thought it got a bit soapy and gave up.

Anyone watching 'The Stranger' on Netflix. From the same people who brought you 'Safe'. We've got through 2 episodes so far.

The final set of episodes of BoJack Horseman are on Netflix. I think we still have portions of season 5 left, but suspect we'll start on that shortly.

Started to watch "Avenue 5". It's a bit odd. Hugh Laurie doing his American accent again, so I groaned, right up until he slipped into his normal voice, and pretty much started poking fun at the accent It's by Armando Iannucci, so that does somewhat explain the oddness.

We watched it all and I read it is filmed in parts in Stockport but none of the nice residential areas looked like any part of Stockport I knew. There were some plot holes in it. Overall very good.

Seen it all now. A born and bred Canadian who I know watched it all remarked at the difference in housing between where the Price family lived and where Adam Price had lived originally.

I gave it a go tonight. You're right, it's good fun. Good soundtrack too. Saw the first two episodes.

Hey, it's Hugo from the very good movie Hugo.

I needed something different to watch tonight saving the last two episodes of Wisting for my Friday night whisky & 7up.

Not one to watch ‘with’ your teenager (far too cringeworthy) - but required watching for every teenager without their mum. The sort of series that the British do so very well...enjoy
Ugh, that's creepy as naff. I'm surprised Jimmy Saville or Harvey Weinstein didn't make an "appearance."

Wisting, all done. Very good.

If you can't get BBC iPlayer or too much buffering watch it here

I only knew because I looked him up.

Saw episode 5 tonight. The "I'm Spartacus" scene was absolutely brilliant.
